I only took about 5 pictures for my first day in Berlin so this is just a space filler/a cool building we came across while walking around.
This is where the rest of my blog entries are gonna be a little less detailed. This is around the time of our trip where I kind of stopped writing in my journal and I was keeping point form notes. I'll have to rack my memory the best I can and use the pictures to write about what we did those days. So we took the train from Munich to Berlin. It took us a while to find our hostel...it wasn't very close to the train station, we had to take the s-Bahn. We were stayingin the hostel called Helter Skelter. Sketchy name, sketchy place hahah. We were in a 13 bed dorm combined with beds and bunkbeds. This place had the most comfy beds of all the hostels we stayed at on our trip.
Yeah we don't know what this is either..
And the blankets were really comfy and the pillows were HUGE! Very nice sleep we had here that's for sure. Our room was a little weird though, there was a random guy from Sweeden who was kind of creepy and a really old guy! And I mean old, this guy was atleast 75. And hey Im up for travelling at all ages but I just though it was weird cause it was a youth hostel haha. Anyways he walked around in a sarong which wasn't the best thing to see...We were really hungry and decided that we wanted some McDonalds so we set out walking to find one. We were walking for a good 45 minutes to an hour and we couldn't find one anywhere! We got to the point where we were so hungry that we just weren't hungry anymore but we were determined to find a McDonalds just because we were so confused as to why we couldn't, Berlin is a pretty big city.
Sketchy place that we walked by during the day which actually turned out to be a bar/nightclub.
Like most places they are usually everywhere!! Anyways we finally found one which was awesome. After that we went and did a little shopping but we didn't actually buy anything cause the clothes were too expensive. After that we just went to our hostel and chilled for awhile. We decided that we wanted to go out that night so we headed to Oranienburger strasse because we heard that it was a very good area for nightclubs and restaurants. We went to one of those restaurants along the street and we had drinks and appies and it was really nice. After that we just started to walk down the street looking for a club or somewhere to go. All of a sudden a big group of people walked by who were speaking english. We were intrigued and we asked what the group was for and it was a pub crawl.
This is one of the many signs posted in that sketchy club.
So we asked if we could join in and they were like sure. So we went to this one club which looked really really sketchy but it was actually a lot of fun. It's funny because this club was right near our hostel and earlier when we were walking around looking for the McDonalds we walked by the place and were like omg this is sketchy, I wouldn't want to be around here at night and then it turns out to be a club. Once you got in you were still outside in this big grassy area kind of and there were 2 bars and like couches and stuff and fires going and people were dancing and then you could go into the building and i think there were bars on the 3rd and 5th floor. And all the way up the stairs all over everything was totally covered in grafitti. It was weird but kind of cool.
Tv tower whoo
We were supposed to pay like half price for the pub crawl for the free drinks and what not but the guy was like nah its ok, so we didn't have to pay and we still went along. After we went to another bar and there was this american guy and I think he said he was from Chicago but OMG he was being soo rude!! He was making all North American travellers look like jack asses. He was yelling at everyone and at the bar tender screaming for drinks and you could tell the bar tender was getting really pissed off. As we were walking to the last club he was running out infront of cars and like making faces to the windows and stuff and he got left behind so thankfully he didn't make it to the last club lol. Anyways we got to the last club and we were there for quite some time drinking, dancing, etc etc. We didn't get back to the hostel until 5am when it was daylight out but it was a fun night!
